We are proud supporters of the Orcas Love Raingardens project, a collaborative program designed to highlight how raingardens can mitigate the impact of polluted stormwater runoff on salmon and orcas.
The program provides STEM and conservation education opportunities to schools and communities in Tacoma. It also gives teachers access to free curriculum resources that integrate raingardens into lesson plans while meeting Washington State’s “Next Generation Science Standards”.
In April 2019, students from Sherman Elementary School presented the Tacoma City Council members with artwork the students created as part of the Orcas Love Raingardens curriculum.
